Next in Line for an investment is The Bluebell Inn on Oswald road, who are apparently set to undergo an extension into the 3 adjoining properties as far as The Old Buccaneer. If this goes ahead it will be like Bluebell street, not a bad thing and it’s good to see some investment being made in the town centre. The beer garden will also be extended in these plans but will it happen? We cannot confirm anything yet but apparently plans and agreements are underway.
Third investment has been STORM nightclub handed over to Stealth Bars, who have renamed and revamped the venue as VOID Nightclub. The venue has not yet reopened but will be having a pre launch event in the future.
What will the venue look like inside now? By the looks of it it’s been undergoing extensive building work inside and it seems to be waiting a long time until re launch since it closed.
The newest venue to gain investment and to re open is Jeff Cundy’s snooker/pool hall on Doncaster Road. It will re open as Kin’s Sports Bar. The venue has currently been shut for 2 years.
If you follow local town centre nightclub storm on social media you will have seen their latest announcement of closure. Although sad news for STORM fans… Don’t worry too much as the venue is set to open under a new management company in May. It might mean a new name but it is uncertain what else will change.
Comment from new management: Greetings from all of us at Stealth bars & clubs ltd
There has been a lot of talk over the past week about the new venue and what we intend to bring to scunthorpe. We don’t want to spoil the surprise however we can confirm that the rumour of the club being called Stealth is false. Tho our company name may be Stealth we actually don’t own any bars with that name 🤔 We can confirm however that this image is part of the new logo!
Anyone who can guess the venues name can have a free vip booth package on us for the launch night (T&C’s apply)
STORM FACEBOOK MSG:
We would just like to say thank you to everyone who enjoyed and supported storm over the past few years but It is with the heaviest hearts that we must say that storm is now closed indefinitely. As we set our sights on to bigger and brighter plans we have handed over the venue to Stealth bars & clubs who promise to bring something scunthorpe has never seen before!
All events planned for storm have been handed over to the new company and will continue under the new venue which aims to open in may.
